So a trip close to home introduced me to a new recipe, Pink Mana-Tea. This stuff is delicious, but damn if it isn’t an ordeal to make. I spoke with Matron Faelra Daete’tiirn and her bodyguard, Vanaste Glannath and they tell me that the proper word is ‘ritual’. Whatever, ‘ordeal’ ‘ritual’ – semantics, this thing is a bitch to make. The end result is worth it though.

There is a long bout of silence. The only sound is that of steady, controlled breathing. Not even Oshu is making noise. When he speaks, his voice is raw and thick.
“That… was number three… Four if you count last night.” An exhausted sigh that borders on defeat. “Thank the Gods, the Loa, the Titans the – the whoever. Whoever is responsible for amazingness that is Jiira… Without her wards – I mean. I assume they’re hers… My brain is… fuzzy right now.” Another long silence.
“Without them I don’t know where I would be… No. No that’s a lie. I know exactly where I’d be. Because this happens every year around this time.” Continue reading “Fourth Crystal”
I don’t usually do these as like… I mean, who really wants to know that much about me? I already babble enough as is and it’s hard enough to shut me up but…
Okay. Here we go. Continue reading “Getting to Know Me: A Z and Cinder challenge”
So last week we made pretzels, and you can’t have pretzelsn wtihout something to dip them in! Since it’s brewfest, that only leaves one option: BEER CHEESE.
Laugh away, but these words literally left my mouth this week: Why do all the brewfest recipes involve booze? Come on Jax. Come on.
Oh man though. So much booze. I don’t know if you’ve met me, but I am not that big. I cannot hold my liquor. And this week… so much booze.

So this one is kind of a one-off because… I mean, I didn’t make these. I assembled them, which, yes, I know hold your applause. But with all the special foods we’re making at the Keg to celebrate Brewfest, grinding my own sausages is just kinda not necessary!!
Delicious pork, fresh sesame buns, topped with all kinds of condiments. Come on down to the Golden Keg! I recommend the beer cheese and onions topping, though my personal fallback is always mustard and pickled veggies. Super good with a nice foamy ale.
When you’re too lazy to clean a dish….
Uh. So again… like… Food is new to me. I am literally starving, so living at a tavern with access to inexpensive food is a fucking Light-send. Near the Stockades (which I’m told are like… Handcuffs for your entire head that you have to stand in in public as punishment) are a bunch of food carts that set up every day.
Today’s meal are sausages from Ironforge, I’m told they’re ram meat. The sauce is something with a weird name I can’t pronounce, it’s a mix of soured white cream, cucumber and dill. Once I start learning how to ya know. Actually cook, I’ll get better at telling everyone else how to do it.
You like… mix about half a cucumber that’s been grated and squeezed, more dill than should be legal in your area, and sour cream. Then you let it chill. I think there’s also garlic, I dunno.
This cost me about half a silver, so I’m a fan. Plus with Braindigger, it’s real nice to always have my own plate!
Crunch crunch crunch “Ish it workin’? Yeah it’sh workin…”
Crunch crunch crunch.
“Okay, so like. I gotta put these nay-sayers to rest. And by ‘put to rest’ I mean bitch at the glow-box and by ‘nay-sayers’ I mean anyone who doubts my amazing culinary skills. Like Drex –” crunch crunch crunch “And Vali. Especially Vali.
So, see. The thing is, Vali is super jealous of my cooking genius. Because I figured it out. I figured out the perfect food. Wait for it…”
Crunch crunch crunch. Continue reading “Second Crystal”
When you have to make pepper eggs, waste not want not!
Fresh pepper egg soup with sage leaf garnish. Delicious and practical. Bone app the teeth.
…wait what? I’m supposed to explain how? …Uh…
Okay uh. So… Pepper eggs are made with like. Well. I use them for quick getaways, right? You take a small egg like from a bird or a dragon hawk, you use a dagger to poke a hole in both ends, and you blow the contents out into a bowl. Like. with your mouth. Literally blow it.
Then you finish with the pepper egg, using whatever you have on hand. The Golden Keg is near a blacksmithing station so I had access to flint AND gunpowder. These are really good eggs.
Anyhow, once you have the egg-snot in a bowl uh. Make it look pretty? I dunno, it’s really good protein, so pepper-egg restock day is usually my biggest food day. It’s amazing. It’s the best.
It’s not for everyone.
“Okay… is this working? I think it’s working. Hi! Oh. Wait you can’t see that. Uh. My name is Jax. Or Jack, apparently. Because I’m singular.
…whatever that means. Continue reading “First Crystal”
